A Fun minimalistic british indie horror-comedy and some
sort of Christmas Zombie-Horror tale with a not
so likeable and nameless anti-hero in the main role (Dan Palmer). I
think it's a british film anyway, not sure.
We're in some office building and it's Christmas Eve and there's a Party
going on somewhere in the building.
A man in a overall is doing something in the ladies toilet and his tool-box
is brimming over with pound notes.
Who's he and why the money in the box ?
He's a pissed-off ex-janitor who has robbed his ex-work
mates charity donation box, and .... he's not in-
vited to the party either. Now, he's dozing off in one of the toilet
stalls when 2 girls enters and one of them
has got a nasty wound on her .... oh, oh, not a good sign in a horror
movie bacause that can only mean one
thing - Zombies ahead! And, yes, suddenly she bites the other girl in
She hears Mr. X in the stall and attacks (see pic above) and now it's
too late for leaving the toilet as more
and more party guests turned zombies enters the ladies toilet. They
are massing up outside of his hiding place
and now - He's Stalled .... will he survive the Apocalypse
A Highly original take on the Zombie theme this was,
as it's almost experimental in it's minimalistic approach.
Most of the film takes place with Mr. X locked into his toilet stall,
with his his thoughts, his conversation with
another stalled one, a woman and with his desperate search for a way
out of this apocalyptic hell-hole.
Kudos to the filmmakers that managed to do someting new and original
with the tired zombie concept.
